I wanted to try a little experiment this morning with a new product that I picked up at Bob's red mill the other day.

I love oat bran so I thought I would give wheat bran a try. Let's just say they are two totally different things. I think the wheat bran is best left for baking with, such as muffins or pancakes.

In the mix (serving for two)
1/2 cup wheat bran
1/4 cup Bob's apple cinnamon hot cereal (for some added taste and texture)
1 cup hot water
dash salt and cinnamon
cook in a small pot for about 5- 10 min.
I mixed in some blueberries at the end

Topped with
a sprinkle of unsweetened coconut
sprinkle of Galaxy granola in not sweet vanilla

This mix was kinda a flop, sad but true. You just don't know unless you do some experimenting.


  1. always worth trying! Looks like a pretty bowl. Especially with that tasty granola on top!!! Have a good weekend

  2. It's always good to try new things! Now you know :-)

  3. i love baking with wheat bran. oat bran is pretty fabulous too, but wheat bran rocks! ive never tried it in oatmeal tho, but it looks like it works really well for a breakfast meal!! <3

  4. That's how you find out what works and what doesn't.
